For once, the rumors proved to be true, as the studio unveiled the new trailer earlier today, which you can check out for yourself below.

Your weekend edition of The Week in Star Wars has a look at the costumes for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Harrison Ford presenting Star Wars Land, more movies after Episode IX and writer-director Kevin Smith’s role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is finally revealed…
We’re kicking things off this week by looking – get this – past Star Wars: Episode IX. When Disney first announced they’d purchased the rights to make more Star Wars movies, they initially announced a new trilogy to take us up to 2019, which was then followed up announcements for spin-off (or Anthology) movies in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (with rumours of a Boba Fett one in there too). It was assumed by the fanbase that this new trilogy would then mark the end of Star Wars. No so, says Disney’s Bob Iger. »

Back in November, Marvel unveiled the first trailer for the highly-anticipated Captain America: Civil War, but we haven't seen too much from this Phase Three adventure since then. There have been rumors that the next trailer will debut during the Super Bowl next weekend, but that hasn't been confirmed quite yet. While we wait for the latest footage to arrive, Iron Studios released a new piece of concept art for this superhero adventure, along with their announcement that new 1/10 Art Scale and 1/4 Legacy Replica statues from this movie will be coming soon.
The artwork features heroes such as Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and more. Hopefully we'll get a better look at all of these heroes in action when the second trailer arrives, but until then, this artwork will have to suffice. »
This week, Neil Calloway looks at the possibility of a combined Star Wars/McU movie…
This week Stan Lee talked about the possibility of a Marvel/Star Wars crossover movie. It’s a tantalising prospect that throws up so many potential plot lines and will excite as many people as it infuriates.
As both Marvel and Lucasfilm are now owned by Disney, it’s a possibility, albeit it a remote one, though you can guarantee that some studio accountant has done a presentation that combined box office figures for Star Wars and McU films (around $7 billion dollars and counting) in an attempt to get the movie green lit. There are of course several hurdles to overcome before it becomes a reality.
First of all, the films in the McU are, more or less, set now, on Earth, whereas quite famously, Star Wars takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far, »

With the two biggest movie franchises in history both under the control of Disney, comic book legend Stan Lee has been talking to Big Issue about the chances of us ever seeing a crossover between Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“I don’t know how many characters you can have in a movie but obviously the people who produce these things are looking to be as successful as possible,” states Lee. “If they feel that incorporating Star Wars with the Marvel characters will be very successful, they’ll find a way to do it. Can you imagine Spider-Man saying: ‘May the force be with you’? It may come to that! We can have as many characters join the Avengers as we want to for future movies. That might be fun too – all of a sudden Luke Skywalker is an Avenger!”
While Stan is surely being a tad optimistic »

Captain America: Civil War boasts one of the biggest casts for any Marvel movie, with almost every major star from Avengers: Age of Ultron showing up, along with a slew of other new characters. With a cast this big, all of whom are battling among each other, it's clear that a few of these familiar heroes and/or villains may die in the movie. Comicbook.com reports that, during a Q&A session at Wizard World New Orleans, star Frank Grillo joked that he'd like to "kill Captain America," which director Joe Russo had a unique response to.
"We may or may not have filmed that scene, though. She asked about a scene you haven't done."
There have been rumors that Cap may die in Captain America: Civil War, but then again, Chris Evans is still expected to return for Avengers: Infinity War Part I in 2018 and Avengers: Infinity War - Part II »
